JL Audio Evolution® C2 Coaxial Speaker System
JL Audio Evolution® C2 Coaxial Speaker System

JL Audio Evolution C2 speaker systems deliver an impressive audio performance solution and value. The technology of the Evolution C2 Series has been drawn from JL Audio's experience in woofer and tweeter design. They have been engineered to deliver adequate efficiency while retaining a smooth mid-range response with low-frequency extension. Smoothness of response and the freedom from distortion are factors that make the C2 Series speakers truly one of a kind and enjoyable for everyone, and the resulting product is one that delivers performance for any car audio enthusiast at a price that won't break the bank!

Silk Dome Tweeter

Silk Dome Tweeter

JL Audio C2 tweeters incorporate silk dome diaphragms to deliver smooth high-frequency transitions, on and off axis. Silk is a natural material with inherently good characteristics as a tweeter diaphragm. In addition to being very light in weight, silk exhibits excellent damping properties, which reduces ringing and resonances in the tweeter’s passband, leading to a smooth, pleasing high frequency character free from unnatural sibilance or exaggerated brightness. This is why a Silk Dome Tweeter is preferred by many audiophiles for its overall balance.


JL Audio Quality, Build and Design

JL Audio Quality, Build and Design

JL Audio Evolution C2 coaxial speaker systems feature mineral-filled polypropylene cones, long excursion capabilities and stamped steel frames. In addition, the woofer design benefits from JL Audio's vast woofer design experience and advanced modeling systems. It is this use of proper high-quality components and advances that allow the speaker to perform better than any other speaker in its price range. The C2-690tx, specifically, has a respectable frequency response of 53 Hz - 22,000 Hz, a continuous-power handling of 70 watts and a solid efficiency of 93.0 dB, giving it the ability to produce smooth mid-range and highs.

Speaker Specifications

Series
This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
Evolution C2 (JL Audio)
Priced Per
Car Speakers are typically sold in pairs so you will receive 2 speakers for each speaker purchase on speakers marked "Priced Per Pair". If a speaker is marked "Priced Per Each" then the speaker is sold individually and each purchase you make will result in 1 speaker. High-powered tweeters, midrange and full-range pro audio for car speakers are typically sold per each speaker.
Pair
Speaker Size
Refers to the size of the speaker measured in inches. Every vehicle has standard application sizes. Please use our vehicle fitment guide for your vehicle's specific speaker sizes if you do not know them.
6" x 9"
Design
The number of individual drivers in a car speaker. Speakers with 2 drivers are known as a 2-way, and 3 drivers are known as a 3-way. Component systems are often referred to as "separates" because the tweeter is not attached to the midwoofer (main speaker driver) and mounts separately in a location such as a door post. Component systems typically come with an external crossover so you can easily adjust the high and low frequencies sent to both the midwoofer and the tweeter. Center channel speakers are great for those looking to have surround sound in their vehicle.
3-way
Tweeter Design
Designs such as cone, dome, semi-dome, balanced dome, and whizzer are most popular. Cone tweeters are simple, efficient and typically are the most reasonably priced. Dome tweeters are used in most home speakers, and provide a smoother and more accurate sound. Semi-dome design is one with a dome placed inside a cone. A Balanced dome driver is a semi-dome with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the driver. A whizzer tweeter is a separate tweeter cone driven by the voice coil of the woofer.
Dome
Tweeter Size
Refers to the size of the tweeter. Typically, smaller tweeters produces less output with higher frequency response.
3/4"
Tweeter Composition
Materials such as polypropylene, silk, cloth, and paper are the most common, where as many more recent tweeters are now manufactured with composites such as Aluminum, Titanium, Mylar, and other materials.

PEI is an acronym for "Polyetherimide" which is an amorphous, amber transparent, high-performance thermoplastic.

Silk
Woofer Composition
Lightweight woofer cone materials are essential for efficient operation. Poly cones produce exceptional sound and are sturdy against various changes in temperature. Paper cones are very efficient, and when treated for moisture resistance, will perform at a high level. Poly refers to polypropylene, which is thermoplastic or fibers that are polymers of propylene. IMPP refers to injection molded polypropylene, a commonly used process and material in speakers.
Mica Injected Polypropylene (MIPP)
Woofer Surround
A speakers surround is part of the suspension system. The surround protects the cone and prevents it from being displaced as it flexes out from the basket. It is usually made of a durable material like treated foam or rubber in order to withstand the strenuous job of producing bass frequencies.
Poly-Foam
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
225 watts
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
70 watts
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
93.0 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
53 - 22,000 Hz
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
4 ohms
Shallow Mount Installation
This means that the subwoofer/speaker is designed to be installed in areas that do not have a lot of space. Shallow mount subwoofers are typically found under a seat or behind the seat in some trucks.

Shallow mount speakers will typically have a mounting depth of 2" or less, while shallow mount subwoofers will typically have a mounting depth of 3" or less.

No
Top-Mount Depth
The depth when installed on top of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the bottom of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
3.06"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches, required to contain the speaker.
Not Specified by Manufacture
Speaker Grilles
A grating or screen of metal or plastic bars or wires, mounted in front of a speaker as protection. If yes, the speakers will include matching speaker grilles. If no, there are no grilles included.
Yes
Number of Speakers
This is the number of speaker that is included in the package. Each purchase will result in receiving the number of speakers indicated here. Please note that some items will have multiple woofers in the same enclosure. For sets of component speakers, this number will refer to the number of sets of speakers (For example, 2 would indicate the purchase includes 2 woofers and 2 tweeters).

Please refer to the product image and description for further details about the speaker.

January 13, 2013

I have been a JL fan for quit some time. Have heard some good things about these 6x9 n just had to get me pair for the corolla. They sound really nice very good detail in the music gives a warm feeling when u listen to them. These might be entry level speakers,but you can't beat them for the price.

Waste Of Money

June 20, 2012

I was JL Audio's absolute biggest fan until I bought these speakers. The highs sound pretty good and the bass gets about as low as you expect a 6x9 to get. BUT, the mids to me were absolutely horrible! On some songs, they were ok, but if anybody but a woman is in the song, the voice is inaccurate and scratchy. Also, although the bass CAN get semi deep, it is not clean bass at all. My previous speakers were Kenwood 6x9's and I can honestly say they were every bit as good as these for half the price. OVERALL: These speakers are a step up from factory and better than the speakers you can buy at Wal-Mart. But believe me, for the price, you can find a lot better sound quality speakers (I have). Needles to say, I sent these speakers back within days of installing them. JL Audio's door speakers are not on par with their other products.

Sound Great

March 13, 2012

These speakers sound great when paired with a 300w Slash V2 amp. They are pretty powerful and have a nice crisp sound. However, they aren't very durable, after about 3-4 months I had one of the tweeters explode.

I have 4 of these in my 300c. They are all installed behind the back seat head rests. On an orion hcca1000.4 these things are crazy loud and can be heard clearly from a long ways away. Mids/lows are incredible compared to any 6x9 i've ever heard personally.

Little dissapointed in JL's 6x9s.

October 2, 2011

Needed a little rear fill for my regular cab Tundra and thought these might fit the bill. Ordered the JLs and purchased a set of wedged mdf boxed from Sonic to put them in.

Got them hooked up to my Pioneer AVH-P4300DVD and I have to admit I'm a bit disappointed in their sound. I'm assuming it's because they're in such small boxes but WOW they sound horrible.

Planning on upgrading to the JL XD400/4 amp to see if that wakes these speakers up.
